Count your blessings

November 5, 2017

One of my favorite songs goes . .

Are you ever burdened With a load of care,
Does the cross seem heavy You are called to bear.
Count your many blessings Every doubt will fly,
And you will be singing As the days go by.

What a beautiful message! I find myself singing this song whenever I feel life’s burdens pressing down on top of me, when the weight of the world feels like it’s on my shoulders. But it’s not! Do you, like me, find yourself complaining more often than you’re thanking? On the forums, Dee has encouraged many of us to post five things every day that we are grateful for. I have found this to be very helpful!

So this week, my challenge to you is to create your own blessings journal. Whether it be in a beautifully bound notebook, or a cheap lined paper book you can get at the dollar store. Everyday write down the blessings of your life. There are many, trust me. Keep this book and perhaps on the bad days, you can open it up and see the wonderful things that God gives to us. I’ve noticed that the more grateful I am over the blessings in life, the less I concentrate on my shortcomings, which helps lower my stress levels.
